NFL Betting - Week 2 Recap

Posted by D.J. Tomkins on 9/22/2009 11:27:00 AM
Find out how you did on each NFL betting line with this recap from last weekend. The Saints' offense looks unstoppable, the Jets continued their impressive start to the season, and the talented Titans surprisingly slipped into an 0-2 hole.


Falcons 28 Panthers 20
Matt Ryan continued his superb play with three touchdown passes. Much to the surprise of online sports betting fans, Jake Delhomme was respectable after last week's meltdown - but the Panthers are still in a 0-2 hole.

Vikings 27 Lions 13
Detroit staked a 10-0 lead but the Vikings rallied thanks to 100-plus total yards from Adrian Peterson. Rookie Percy Harvin looked great (134 total yards and a touchdown).

Bengals 31 Packers 24
Green Bay's offensive line woes continued in this stunning upset. Antwan Odom had five of Cincinnati's six sacks and the Packer offense would have been completely hopeless without two takeaways from the defense (one for a score).

Texans 34 Titans 31
Houston's explosive offense was back in from with Matt Schaub throwing for 357 yards and four touchdowns. Titans running back Chris Henry was sensational in defeat (284 yards and three scores), but now 0-2 Tennessee faces a long, uphill battle.

Raiders 13 Chiefs 10
It was an ugly game, but JaMarcus Russell finally showed some development by leading a game-winning drive—Darren McFadded punched in the go-ahead touchdown with a minute left in the game. Matt Cassel underwhelmed in his Chiefs debut.

Jets 16 Patriots 9
Rex Ryan has completely turned around this Jets defense, which swarmed and pestered Pats quarterback Tom Brady. Brady doesn't look like his old self yet and now New York has sole possession of the AFC East—something no sportsbook bettor could have predicted.

Saints 48 Eagles 22
Drew Brees and the Saints show no signs of slowing down; this offense is downright terrifying. The Eagles, meanwhile, have a bevy of problems to sort out on defense. Kevin Kolb moved the ball in place of the injured Donovan McNabb but he turned it over three times.

Redskins 9 Rams 7
The Redskins have yet to find an identity on offense and they're lucky to escape with a win. The Rams, meanwhile, could use a better effort from Marc Bulger (125 yards passing).

Cardinals 31 Jaguars 17
Kurt Warner rebounded from a poor Week 1 showing to break the NFL record for completion percentage in a single game. The Jags defense hit Warner just once — not nearly good enough.

49ers 23 Seahawks 10
Frank Gore turned back the clock with a masterful performance (207 yards, including touchdowns of 79 and 80 yards) while the Niners "D" suffocated the passing game. Matt Hasselbeck suffered a rib injury and his status is questionable.

Bills 33 Buccaneers 20
Terrell Owens caught his first touchdown as a Bill, but the real story behind their offense is Fred Jackson, who rolled up 163 yards on 28 carries; Marshawn Lynch should be concerned. Tampa Bay's defense had another brutal week, while the running game fell back to earth after a nice Week 1 effort.

Bears 17 Steelers 14
Bears fans can breathe a sigh of relieve as Jay Cutler looked much better (two touchdowns, no turnovers). Unless Big Ben is going to throw for 350 yards every week, the Pittsburgh running game needs to get going fast.

Ravens 31 Chargers 26
Suddenly, Baltimore's offense looks very intimidating. Joe Flacco is off to a nice start in his second year, while the Ravens running game features a nice rotation of backs. This was a tough loss for San Diego, especially after learning a day earlier that defensive tackle Jamal Williams will miss the season.

Broncos 27 Browns 6
After all the hand-wringing in the offseason, the Broncos are 2-0. They got 17 carries from rookie Knowshon Moreno, which is a very positive step. Cleveland's offense was pathetic, generating just 200 yards while turning it over three times.

Giants 33 Cowboys 31
No Plaxico Burress? No problem. Steve Smith and Mario Manningham combined for 20 catches, 284 yards and two touchdowns for the Giants. Dallas remained in this game only because of a dominant running game (251 yards, three scores), as Tony Romo threw three picks and played terrible.

Colts 27 Dolphins 23
In Monday night football betting, Ronnie Brown showcased the Wild Cat at its finest by rolling up 136 yards and reaching the end zone twice. It was all for naught, though, as Peyton Manning and Dallas Clark (183 yards, touchdown) simply outgunned Miami.
